Beadweaving, bead fringe, bead netting, daisy edging--with beads, everything looks better, and this attractive, amazingly informative compilation of techniques and projects contains countless ways to beautify clothes and accessories. Every stitch, from the stacked seed stitch to the looped backstitch is described in detail and well-illustrated, as are various methods of transferring patterns to material and ways of making bead chains and other more complex designs. Transform a T-shirt with beaded "sleeves" made from the fabric-like vertical net stitch. Enhance a basic cardigan with a shimmering appliqu#65533;d koi pattern. For high-fashion elegance, hand-embroider a formal dress with beaded flowers. From hat bands to scarves to belts, the most basic items look unique with a touch of beading magic.
